vote on obama care. there's no way these guys are going to come to a deal, and the reason is this. the president has got the upper hand, and his most important partner is the weakest person in this, which is john boehner. john boehner is on the verge of losing credibility with his caucus. he can't take a deal to his caucus that will pass without the help of nancy pelosi, which will pull the entire deal to the left. so what they have to do is they have to go over the cliff. we're just talking about politics, we're not talking about finances here. they have to go over the cliff. that strengthens boehner's hands because now everybody is paying a hell of a lot more taxes and people are blaming the republicans, and now boehner can go to the caucus and maybe get 200 and a few votes and then with nancy pelosi pick off a few democrats and make some kind of deal. having said that, the best thing for the country is never to come to a deal because ed rendell is right. as a former governor, we don't operate with big deficits. you can't do that and we're in trouble in this country financially. the

president obama and congress aren't able to avoid the fiscal cliff people here in california will be hit especially hard because of prop 30 which was voted into law back in november. it will soon mean higher sales tax and higher income tax on the state's top earners. the fiscal cliff would add to that hitting all americans with higher taxes. >> i don't know, there's a word to describe how upset the public is going to be. nobody's going to be happy to see that happen. >> if taxes go up on everybody it's not going to be a happy time. but i think that's inevitably what's going to happen. >> they say the lowest income folks will see their take home pay shrink just over three and a half%. average earners 4% and top earners 6%. >> another sign the housing market is improving, the national association of realtors says pending home sales rose last month to the highest level in 2 and a half years. pending sales rose nearly 2% in november and that's the third month in a row it's gone up. >> amazon had a green christmas season. they announced the 2012 holiday sales were the biggest ever. they h

the first obama election we had 93.5% voter turnout. i would get about 70% but i would be the first or second actual number of votes. people cared, they pay attention, they are involved. if they did not like what i was doing i would be out of there. i knew it. i was lucky. i treated that district really well. i respected them, i think they loved me. >> one of the issues involved in the 2012 election cycle the women's vote and the hispanic vote. the hispanic vote 38% of california vote at this point. >> so, doesn't that put the pressure on the white house and the congress to respect the hispanic vote and do something for them? because if they don't, that vote will not be there in two years for congress. >> lynn woolsey, 20-year member of congress retiring this term. this is c-span. >> on friday's washington journal -- next, the countdown to the fiscal cliff. >> it is straight forward, comprehensive, and it does not have someone introjecting. that is what i appreciate. if you are looking to come -- to become more familiar with how government works, c-span. >> c-span is brought to you

was in the south. you could go to integrated schools and you could vote and you could make a real living wage. and there was a huge vibrant social, religious life there. no, i was going to say that when michelle obama's ancestors got there, the south side and she always says she is the south side girl and you are a cell site guy, it looks nothing like it did. her great-grandmother phebe moten johnson arrived sometime in 19 eight when the south side was predominately white. >> there is a renaissance story and it's a chicago renaissance and i want to read your description of it because given how important the harlem renaissance is, the cultural history of african-american and the political history still as imagined in the world and it was once described as the mac of america. you described it as a personality passion was the percussive and syncopated rhythms that have become the soundtrack of the burgeoning south side. he was handy with the drums himself and his jazz lover. there was no better place to be in the 1920s than chicago, the epicenter of the nation's blues and jazz record
